  2. 2. Professional Development Background <br /> South Harmon SD is in the beginning phases of implementing an E-Portfolio program for all middle and high school students. Through their research the administration has been advised to begin this process with a small group of teachers from each building. These teachers will serve as faculty mentors for all middle and high school teachers in later phases of the e-portfolio program. This group of teachers will learn the necessary methods, and technical skills needed to effectively develop electronic artifacts, digital images of work, and reflective writing of student learning, all vital for a successful e-portfolio.<br />
  3. 3. Learner Background <br /> Technology use surveys were given to all South Harmon teachers during the spring of the previous school year. The teachers selected for this PD workshop have demonstrated Tier 1 and 2 levels of technology integration in their classrooms. These teachers have stated a familiarity with Microsoft Office applications PowerPoint, Word, and Excel in either personal or professional use. Each teacher has indicated an ability to use the internet along with a desire to learn how to implement technology into their classrooms in a manner that will enhance student learning. By participating in this workshop these teachers have also agreed to serve as mentor teachers in their respective schools. They will provide support to other teachers in their buildings who are not at Tier 1 or 2 technology levels.<br />

Arrangements will have been made in advance to those participating as well as those hosting the professional development.<br />Artifacts - Learners will be expected to bring professional artifacts in digital form to use in creating their E-Portfolio and a selection of lesson plans (including plans for the upcoming year) for the technology enhancement activity<br />
